This is so RAD! Printing up to sit next to the printer!

Great tips, really helped me get an understanding, BUT now I get an forum error trying to access them. Just me? Really should have printed them out.

With all these settings we have, does anyone have a list of what setting depends on what "profile type"?

Like what is changed when switching the printer profile, the filament profile or quality setting?

This would be very handy.

One of the S3D videos list the parameter which the "Material" and Quality" profiles store. Here's their video.

I use the "Material" profile to store paramters in the: Extruder, Temperature and Cooling tabs.
Sample from a dual extruder Material autoconfigure profile:

Code: Select all

  <autoConfigureMaterial name="ABS-LH3-Black">
    <extruder name="Back Extruder">
      <toolheadNumber>0</toolheadNumber>
      <diameter>0.5</diameter>
      <autoWidth>1</autoWidth>
      <width>0.6</width>
      <extrusionMultiplier>0.94</extrusionMultiplier>
      <useRetract>1</useRetract>
      <retractionDistance>0.9</retractionDistance>
      <extraRestartDistance>0</extraRestartDistance>
      <retractionZLift>0</retractionZLift>
      <retractionSpeed>1800</retractionSpeed>
      <useCoasting>1</useCoasting>
      <coastingDistance>0.2</coastingDistance>
      <useWipe>0</useWipe>
      <wipeDistance>5</wipeDistance>
    </extruder>
    <extruder name="Front Extruder">
      <toolheadNumber>1</toolheadNumber>
      <diameter>0.5</diameter>
      <autoWidth>1</autoWidth>
      <width>0.6</width>
      <extrusionMultiplier>0.94</extrusionMultiplier>
      <useRetract>1</useRetract>
      <retractionDistance>0.9</retractionDistance>
      <extraRestartDistance>0</extraRestartDistance>
      <retractionZLift>0</retractionZLift>
      <retractionSpeed>1800</retractionSpeed>
      <useCoasting>1</useCoasting>
      <coastingDistance>0.2</coastingDistance>
      <useWipe>0</useWipe>
      <wipeDistance>5</wipeDistance>
    </extruder>
    <temperatureController name="Back Extruder Temperature">
      <temperatureNumber>0</temperatureNumber>
      <isHeatedBed>0</isHeatedBed>
      <relayBetweenLayers>0</relayBetweenLayers>
      <relayBetweenLoops>0</relayBetweenLoops>
      <stabilizeAtStartup>1</stabilizeAtStartup>
      <setpoint layer="1" temperature="245"/>
      <setpoint layer="10" temperature="243"/>
      <setpoint layer="33" temperature="243"/>
    </temperatureController>
    <temperatureController name="Front Extruder Temperature">
      <temperatureNumber>1</temperatureNumber>
      <isHeatedBed>0</isHeatedBed>
      <relayBetweenLayers>0</relayBetweenLayers>
      <relayBetweenLoops>0</relayBetweenLoops>
      <stabilizeAtStartup>1</stabilizeAtStartup>
      <setpoint layer="1" temperature="245"/>
      <setpoint layer="10" temperature="243"/>
      <setpoint layer="33" temperature="243"/>
    </temperatureController>
    <temperatureController name="Heated Bed">
      <temperatureNumber>2</temperatureNumber>
      <isHeatedBed>1</isHeatedBed>
      <relayBetweenLayers>0</relayBetweenLayers>
      <relayBetweenLoops>0</relayBetweenLoops>
      <stabilizeAtStartup>0</stabilizeAtStartup>
      <setpoint layer="1" temperature="110"/>
      <setpoint layer="2" temperature="110"/>
      <setpoint layer="10" temperature="100"/>
      <setpoint layer="60" temperature="90"/>
    </temperatureController>
    <fanSpeed>
      <setpoint layer="1" speed="0"/>
      <setpoint layer="2" speed="60"/>
      <setpoint layer="4" speed="0"/>
      <setpoint layer="10" speed="50"/>
    </fanSpeed>
  </autoConfigureMaterial>
"Quality" stores the parameters for other tabs. I use these profiles to store Layer and Speed (OTHERS tab) parameters, but I've added Z-offset (GCODE tab) and filament diameter as a test.

Sample:

Code: Select all

  <autoConfigureQuality name="LH3_5400">
    <globalExtrusionMultiplier>0.94</globalExtrusionMultiplier>
    <layerHeight>0.3</layerHeight>
    <topSolidLayers>4</topSolidLayers>
    <bottomSolidLayers>4</bottomSolidLayers>
    <skirtLayers>1</skirtLayers>
    <skirtOutlines>3</skirtOutlines>
    <infillPercentage>100</infillPercentage>
    <supportInfillPercentage>20</supportInfillPercentage>
    <defaultSpeed>5400</defaultSpeed>
    <outlineUnderspeed>0.4</outlineUnderspeed>
    <solidInfillUnderspeed>0.8</solidInfillUnderspeed>
    <supportUnderspeed>1.1</supportUnderspeed>
    <rapidXYspeed>6000</rapidXYspeed>
    <gcodeZoffset>.1</gcodeZoffset>
    <filamentDiameter>3</filamentDiameter>
  </autoConfigureQuality>
Note the Multiplier (from the Extruder tab governed by Material) can be modified by adding the "global". Its probably just scratching the surface,

Attached an old FFF for a single extruder which has multiple "Material" and "Quality" autoconfigure profiles. FFFs are best viewed and manipulated in an XML editor like Notepad++ (Windows) or TextWrangler (Mac).

Hope this helps.
